The Gospel

This is the good news of Jesus Christ who has come into the world to change the world. He confronts our rebellion towards God and offers us, by grace, his forgiveness through his death on the cross in our place. We are no longer forever condemned but are forever declared right with God and brought back to him. From this springs our worship.

The Bible

The Bible is God’s written word. It is all we need in order to know what to believe and do. The “seed of the word” is the power by which, with the Holy Spirit, God’s life is generated and grows in us. We seek to engage our minds with the Bible, wanting everyone to be convinced for themselves of the truth of what it says. From this springs our loving obedience to His word.

Changed Lives

The Gospel changes us from the inside out. Through the in-dwelling power of the Holy Spirit, the gospel forms our true identity in Christ. Our purpose now is to serve Jesus and to live in the light of His coming. From this springs our desire to live like Christ and see his kingdom come.

New People

The gospel produces a new, worshipping community of God’s people who, transcending age, race and gender, are brought together under Christ. From this springs our desire to be one people under God.

Loving Service

Christians must be known by their love for all, and especially each other. We expect acts of mercy to be manifested in a church that lives out the gospel. From this springs our love and care for the weak, vulnerable and disadvantaged.

Mission in the City

The gospel is for sharing and living out in the city. We believe that the gospel moves people outward into the wider context: parish, workplace, school/university, neighbourhood, the city of Manchester. From this springs our passion for God’s mission to our city.

Class Schedule | Group Activities

Over 50s but not over the hill! Many people now have the advantage of retiring earlier and so, belonging to a group which caters for both the physically active and the less so is valued by all involved.

The activities include visiting local attractions, meals together, visiting speakers, sporting activities (table football, etc.), weekends away to name but a few.

Come along to one of our popular coffee mornings. They run on the last monday of each month and offer a host of drinks and homemade cakes and scones.

For more information speak to Ruth Davey in the church office.

A word from the reverend

” The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty. Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today. You learn more from failure than from success. Don’t let it stop you. Failure builds character.”
